1940 WW2, London Docklands. The German bombing of England was more frequent and cities and towns up and down the country were beginning to witness nightly attacks. Here we see Docklands terrace housing area where bombs have completely destroyed a street, total destruction.

London Blitz WW2



London Blitz started in September 1940 during WW2. This photo for me is really interesting, just look at the near total devastation caused by the bombing at this bookshop/Library. Yet the people are browsing the books what can only be hours or  days after it was hit. Carrying on normal life activities in the face of adversity! No wonder we won the war.
